Hi! My name is Jennifer. I grew up with dogs mostly smaller dogs like Poodles and Shih Tzu’s. As an adult I’ve owned 2 Rhodesian Ridgebacks who both lived to be 12 1/2 years old. My current dog is a mixed breed dog who I rescued 3 years ago. Walking, exercising, and socializing my pets has always been a huge priority for me. I look forward to taking your dog out so he or she can get the proper exercise they need.

I absolutely love dogs! I grew up with a very moody pup, I fostered a sweet 80 lbs yellow lab for an entire year, and when friends or friends of friends need someone to watch their dogs they often come to me :-) So I've spent time with the spectrum of different dogs and temperments. I am very happy to give company and play with a cuddly friend.

My name is Sean; I am a freshman at the University of Washington, Seattle campus, where I am majoring in Biology Sciences. I have a wide array of interests; my main area of interest is Science and my long-term goal is to attend medical school and become a doctor. During my senior year in high school, a significant portion of my time was taken up with Special Olympics; I feel as though my time spent with these special athletes has shown me why I need to continue my academic journey and follow through on my goals, dreams and ambitions. These special athletes never give up and their spirit and unconditional love for others will stay with me throughout my life. I am from Orange County, California and I actively participate in a wide-array of sports and leisure activities: baseball, basketball, football, golf, hiking, soccer, tennis, volleyball, walking, etc. I love animals, especially dogs, and I have been dog sitting and walking dogs on a regular basis since I was ten years old.

Dog Boarding in San Clemente

Named the “Best Place to Adopt a Pet” by the Orange Coast Magazine, the Pet Project Foundation is a humane rescue in partnership with the San Clemente-Dana Point Animal Shelter. A group of concerned citizens who called themselves FOSCA for Friends of San Clemente Animals started the Pet Project Foundation in the early 1980’s. The foundation expanded to partner with Dana Point to accept animals in need of rescue in 1996. 

With 25,000 volunteer hours and donations surmounting to $400,00 for animal care, the Foundation placed 700 animals into loving homes during 2015.  No adoptable animal will ever be euthanized at this shelter. Every animal receives a warm bed, veterinary care, healthy food plus daily socialization and exercise. 

The compassion is extended to animals with special needs who may need unique medical care or ongoing socialization. Prospective pet parents are guided to consider their ability to provide their pet with the time, care, and socialization that will make for a healthy and lasting bond. The quarterly newsletter, Wagging Tails, celebrates loving adoptions with pictures of pets and people happily united, showcases pets needing homes and features volunteers. 

The shelter sponsors fund-raising events such as Santa Paws Pet Photos, Gifts of Love, Barks and Brews, and wine tastings. The Tail of Two Cities Annual Gala Wild West Hoedown! is their largest annual fundraiser. “Yippee-Yowl” up a good time by dressing  in your best western wear to dine and party at the Bella Collina Towne and Golf Club each September.

Rails to Trails

0

The San Clemente Pedestrian Beach Trail hugs the picturesque shoreline of Southern California. The trail parallels the rail from the North Metro and leads pedestrians and their puppers between the rails, beach and cliffs full of natural flora. The trail will lead to a bridge that serves as a boardwalk over sensitive beach habitat. The trail will take you to the Pier Bowl trailhead where there are shops, restaurants, and picnic areas. The trail is groomed but unpaved and narrow in parts. One reviewer described this trail as too perfect to be true! Both human and dog will excite at the sunshine, sights, sounds, and smells of the trains, ocean, and life along the way.
